We went at night and in the rain , partly to take shelter from the rain , so we didn't see much, but it saved a hilly walk! Not that long a trip, but for a few Euros you get what you pay for.

I did not ride the funicular ... but I stood on the bridge and watched it go up and down, saving lots and lots of steps for many people. If I were closer, I would have taken this ride.

Not the best we've been on, not really any views, but our 10 year old liked it, bit dear for what it was

Although we generally prefer to walk most places, we decided to try the funicular for something different. It only costs €2:50 per person and is over very quickly, but you do get very good views - and a short rest!

We had been walking a lot and walking back up the hill was not an option, so the funicular was. This is a fast way from the riverside to near Soa Bento station. Nice views of the bridge Luis 1 as you move up!

This is a good way to get to the top of the bridge with some lovely views of river and bridge. If you have not been on one before its a good thing to do
